Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Proves Wholly Unable to Understand Colleague’s Super Bowl Joke

AOC has become an entertaining freshman representative, if nothing else.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Self-proclaimed socialist New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is once again showing how absurd she is as a person, this time by completely missing the point of a Super Bowl joke by fellow Congresscritter Dan Crenshaw of Texas.

Republican Crenshaw jumped to Twitter last weekend to joke about taxing the New England Patriots to make NFL competition “fair and equal,” but New York socialista Occasional-Cortex clearly didn’t get Crenshaw’s joke and replied to defend her confiscatory taxation plan.

After the New England Patriots won yet another Super Bowl and brought quarterback Tom Brady an historic sixth Super Bowl ring, Texas Representative Dan Crenshaw hit Twitter with a quip about making things “more fair” in the NFL.

“Should someone propose a 70% tax on the Patriots so that NFL competition is more fair and equal? Asking for a friend,” the Texan tweeted on Monday morning.

Clearly Crenshaw was just making a joke that the Patriots are so overpowering that maybe a confiscatory tax rate will chop them down to size to make it “fair and equal” for the rest of the NFL. Crenshaw was just throwing shade on the whole idea that high taxes levels the playing field for anyone or anything and that the left’s ideas about assuring equal outcome is absurd.

But it appears that Ocasio-Cortez didn’t get the joke and instead jumped up to come to the defense of her disastrous tax policy ideas.

“The average NFL salary is $2.1 million, so most players would never experience a 70% rate,” she replied to Crenshaw’s tweet. “The owners who refuse to hire Kaepernick would, though.”

Crenshaw was joking about reducing the Patriots’ excellence using the left’s absurd “fairness” arguments and punishing success, but the fact that Ocasio-Cortez thought he was talking about payroll is telling.

What a joke!

Liberals can be summed up with one word: triggered. Everything annoys them to no end, to the point where they feel they need to get violent. We see it happen on nearly a daily basis. Check out what went down when a teenage boy decided to wear a MAGA hat in our nation’s capitol. It didn’t go over well with a random future Joe Biden voter. WATCH: https://twitter.com/charlienicole/status/1279905108289941505?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1279905108289941505%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhorrible-trump-supporters-in-dc-accosted-and-harassed-by-blm-thug-who-stole-their-maga-hats-video%2F Criminals seemingly don’t have as bad a reputation as police officers. Without question, ex-cop Derek Chauvin was in the wrong when he placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. But why are all officers being blamed for one bad apple? It’s not right. Some cops are fed-up. From Miami Herald: The 10 members of the Hallandale Beach Police Department’s SWAT team have stepped down from their roles, citing among other grievances anger over the city’s police chief kneeling with protesters earlier this week, a memo the officers signed read. They will remain with the police department. On Friday morning, Hallandale Beach received a memo from the members of the SWAT team with a list of grievances, Hallandale Beach City Manager Greg Chavarria said. Police Chief Sonia Quiñones has set a meeting with the 10 officers on Monday to hear their concerns, collect their equipment and thank them for their service.

Report: President Trump to Refile Paperwork This Week That Will Rescind DACA Program

A big move…

Like most things nowadays, DACA has long divided conservatives and liberals. On Monday, it was reported that President Trump is set to make a big move later in the week. Here’s the scoop, via The Hill: President Trump is expected to refile paperwork this week to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that offers protections for thousands of young immigrants, according to multiple people familiar with the planning. Trump was initially expected to move to once again rescind the Obama-era program last week, but it was pushed back, according to one source. The exact timing remains in flux, but Trump is now expected to file the paperwork this week. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows hinted in an interview with Fox News earlier Monday that the president was readying executive action on immigration issues, though he did not offer specifics. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts hasn’t been the conservative stalwart Republicans had expected when first nominated by President George W. Bush. Anything but, really. After siding with his liberals peers yet again, GOP Senator Tom Cotton (AR) is telling Roberts he should step aside.
